4 Unbelievable Facts About Rory McCann You Probably Never Knew
Game of Thrones may be long over but the show’s cast will live on in our memory forever. The final episode of the show gave fans goosebumps for many reasons, one of them being the tragic death of The Hound, a peculiar character we’ve all grown to love over the years.
While his striking features and incredible acting skills definitely set him apart from the rest, there are so many things about the actor, Rory McCann, we didn’t know… until now!
When the faux scars, long hair, and the untamed beard comes off, Rory looks almost unrecognizable! It’s no secret that the actor has accumulated millions over the years, his beginnings are more humble than we’d imagined.
Career Before Acting
Rory showed quite the skill with wielding an ax on the HBO show, but don’t let that surprise you because the actor was an axeman by profession before he got into acting. Rory was a qualified lumberjack before his life took a 180-degree turn for the better.
No wonder the producers snapped him up immediately since he fit into The Hound’s role so perfectly.
Not everyone’s born with a silver spoon in their mouths, especially not McCann, who struggled to make ends meet before making it big.
The actor was once homeless and completely broke, living on food he stole from grocery stores and supermarkets. While this might make him look bad at first, McCann defended himself by saying that he had no other means of survival.
Of course, his bad days are now behind him which means that he never has to go back to shoplifting again.
While there is no doubt that McCann is a master of his craft, the actor has gone through several trials and tribulations to get to where he is now.
At one point during the filming of the show, he was required to lose some weight to make his recovery from the White Walker attack more believable. To achieve his goal, McCann started going to the gym, eating healthily and even gave up on alcohol.
The actor is currently single and isn’t too keen on changing that status because of his hectic work schedule.
In an interview, he revealed that he hasn’t gone on many dates since he first started acting and a lot of it has to do with the fact that he travels too frequently to sustain a stable relationship.
